Question: bladder cut during Hysterectomy


 mariarebecca - Thu Mar 13, 2008 11:43 am

I had a laprascopic hysterectomy and the doctor cut my bladder 3 centemeters. He repaired it wrong and I now need another surgery. Should he not have gotten help to fix such a big cut? and is the size of the cut normal?

User avatar Hello,
This is one of the more common adverse events that happen during this procedure. It does not sound extreme and needing a second repair sometimes is necessary. It would be impossible to second guess your doctor's action but it sounds reasonable that he/she gave it a good shot at trying to repair it at the time and I think any surgeon would have done the same. Unfortunately this is one of he risks of surgery and I wish you the best in your complete repair and recovery.

Best wishes.
